Well this blows

Recommended Posts

Well imagine that. Apparently part of the problem is I got attacked by some medieval pastry Knight.

 

Pretty sure the doc said something about Sir Hostess .

Seriously though, does that improve if you stop drinking?  Asking for a friend.  :unsure:

So what is the prognosis?  I presume there is a range of cupcake sweetness.

So, I started a new job it's another full-time job on top of the other full-time job. And my grief counselor, my work counselor, and my primary care physician and my cardiologist all stopped by. Mostly mostly because it's a really cool store.  But also, Mostly because I shouldn't be working one job much less two full jobs. But they're all really cool and they're all really grateful that I'm happy with my new job.

 

You know what? F*** it. I'm still supposed to see a couple of specialists. The end of the day it's terminal and the only question is how long it should last.

 

My PCP is freaking amazed that I'm still walking around. Much less having two full-time jobs. And by the way, I love my jobs. And by the way? It's a 2-mile walk back and forth every day. But that's the bargain I made with my cardiologist. I can't do cardio rehab. So I do that.

 

I've got some social worker who guarantees that their lawyer can get me on SSDI. But I literally don't have any symptoms. I'm freaking healthy as a horse. I work more hours Than People half my age and I can throw paletts like a mofo. And God damn it I'm not just going to lay around and smoke pot like every else in Colorado.

 

So latest blood work is no real different. Terminal. Irreversible. That's f******. I haven't changed one thing. Because if it's terminal and irreversible? Why the f*** would I?

So that's the latest. Love the new gig.

 

And if this is dying? Short of the lack of b*******? I'll take it.

Dude, you should check out our shop. The owners are really cool. We can scripted a ton of local Bakers mostly. Some Caterers as well. And we have customers who used to drive forever to get to what ever Bakery, and now they come to us. Like the French kitchen? I'm guessing you've heard of them. They f****** rock.

We have rolled Irish butter. Which to me is like the queen of decadence. And some of the most amazing breads you've ever seen. And that's just a subset. We brought it in a limited edition 911 whiskey yesterday? Sold out. Freaking amazing. We believe in food being the heart of community. I can't remember ever having a job I love so much. And I'm going to work there till I drop.

 

And if you were stopped by there after I drop? Make sure you tell them that.

Terminal thing obviously sucks, but glad you're enjoying your work.  Do they deliver across the US?

I'm glad that you like what you do wiffleball. I hope you can keep on top of the work/life balance and have the mental fortitude to deal with your terminal diagnosis as well.

Oh damn it. Went to the doctor today and she gave me really relatively good news.

 

So of course told hours later, I developed pretty significant internal bleeding. North and south. 

 

If I can get it to slow down or not, I go to the ER. But God damn it, I have to work in 4 hours too.

 

Leave it to me to die like a less talented version of fat Elvis.

Dude Elvis sat on the toilet when he died. Most people other than Tywin Lannister die better than he did.

So I'm admitted again. Kind of sucks. The nurses aren't even cute.

 

Hemorrhage God knows how much blood last night and this morning.

God, they better not keep me overnight.  Sux.

Sorry, Wiff.  So what is the diagnosis?  You've been so cryptic.  Cancer?  What type?  Anyway, you're my favorite one here.  I wish you the best.  I'm sorry this is happening to you.

After rereading the first post over and over I focused in on this line:

I think he mentioned it as cirrhosis. I think that is what is causing the blood and heart issues.

 

Hopefully they can get him patched up and back out there.

Sheesh, now I feel even more like an attention wh0re.  I’ve been meditating a lot lately and will send you thoughts of loving kindness.  If you smiled a little about this given my situation, it’s already working.  :thumbsup:

Not sure if I get the entire gist of this thread, but... from what I have read, this saddens me more than you’ll know. You have always been one of the best parts of this little corner of a lightly trafficked message board. You have made me smile and literally laugh out loud more times than I can count, and I hope you manage to hang in there for a little while longer. If not, I hope you find peace and know that you will be missed here.

In honor of you, my friend:

So, apparently, major esophageal bleed. Or more to the point, six of them. Plus three ulcers plus my stomach lining shot.

Imagine varicose veins in your esophagus. Apparently the guy who did the procedure said they are the largest he's seen in his career. Oh, yay?

 

I can tell you it was the most painful recovery I've ever had. I know plenty of people who have had a whole lot worse, but not me. My beloved fentanyl was useless.  But then add Dalaudin and it was delightful.

 

They tell me all these things after the procedures are done. Like Apparently one third of all people who present with something like this at the hospital never leave.

 

But literally at the end of day and all day tomorrow and maybe Sunday pretty much my whole job just to sit around with 35 different probes  attached to me and blood work seemingly every 12 minutes, and not s*** or puke blood. Which surprise surprise isn't working out so well.

 

God, I'm bored. 

... and there's a bar about a 10-minute walk from here.

Thoughts and prayers.

 

Provide some updates and hopefully we can keep you entertained while you are in the hospital

You could watch all 19 marvel movies, we know how much you love sequels and super heros. That will take a few days.
